Respect Party candidate George Galloway has taken the Bradford West parliamentary seat from Labour, winning the by-election by 10,100 votes

Mr Galloway, expelled by Labour in 2003, said it was the "most sensational victory" in by-election history. He received 18,341 votes - a 56% share.

Labour's deputy leader Harriet Harman said the results were "disappointing".

At the 2010 General Election, Labour's Marsha Singh, who resigned on health grounds, won with a majority of 5,763.
